Searching for 'shadowrun' in all forums reports no hits, which is patently a lie, but TNE actually returns a thread.

Is the search index still rebuilding or something?

It's not just you. PhpBB search is notoriously crap.

In the Last Post column on the front page, it only says who posted last. Could it be set so that it shows which post was last modified?

All the stickies in IMHO have indentation problems. It is slightly mitigated by the fact that everything is split up by separate posts, but it's still really weird. Also, the first post's paragraph titles are super small in all the stickies.

phpBB indexes posts when they are created. We inserted data directly in the database, so no index was created for old posts. Once the site is indexed in Google, we can change the search to use Google's site search.

You can feel free to look up a MOD using the mod database on phpbb.com. If one exists, I can install it.

That's what I meant. The first one (username in viewtopic) is not likely to work because it is vor version 3.0. We are running 2.0.22.

I'll see what I can do about installing the admin userlist mod, though.

[EDIT] Install went just fine. You now have a nice user listing in the admin panel (last link on the left).

Argh, that is.. painful. Is there any way to retroactively index the old posts?

As a side, that's a effin weird Database indexing system.

I guess it's easier to index based off of the timecode primarily rather than indexing it off of subject matter? Trying to see this from a coder's pov.

That proclaims to allow you to rebuild the tables for the search tool - would it be possible to get this to fly?

We can either use that, or install a MOD that adds a google search box to the site.

As a note, running the script you linked would take a very long time as it loads every post, one at a time, and then throws it to the standard search indexer. This indexing is usually done when a post is created so that there is a little hit every time you post, rather than a large hit at one time.

I don't know about anyone else, but I'd much rather have the Google search than phpBB's crappy built-in search.

The password dialog says it emails me, but no email ever shows up.

Is your outgoing mail server configured correctly? If I recall, it defaults to pointing at the local address instead of the actual IP for trackbacks. If that's so, my mail server will refuse the mail. (Which is RFC)

Aside from that, my email address should work.

When I try to quote I get a redirect to the index. It could just be my browser setup playing badly with the way phpBB redirects.

Google never seems to hit all the posts on a subject, try searching the old den for 'shadowrun' you don't get all the hits.

It makes me log in every single time when I try to post (despite me clicking the 'stay logged in' button, and sometimes it blocks a post and says "Invalid session. Please resubmit form."

So...what gives?

Log in, then specifically log out. That should remove your cookie. Then, log in and try again.

If that doesn't work, I'd recommend clearing cookies to see if physically deleting it helps.

Had some issues with that, clearing the cookies seemed to have fixed the issue.

Annoying: phpBB stores what threads have been visited locally instead of on the server.

That really makes it pretty useless, as every time I switch from computer to computer to read, the threads are marked 'unread' or 'read' by whatever was read on that computer.

It also uses a double redirect and eventually goes to the first post of the day, often meaning it sends me to the same post more than several times.

Is there any way I can just disable this function?

That's odd, because it happens here.

What are you doing differently? Do you log in each time separately?
